No 24-hour Casinos in Illinois.
The Illinois Gaming Board announced today a request from a casino trade group was denied.
Supporters pushed for round-the-clock operations after the state legalized 24-hour video gambling at truck stops. They say casinos lose money because gamblers go to 24-hour casinos in Iowa, Missouri, and Indiana.
For now, Illinois casinos will have to make do with their allowed 22 hours of business a day.
